Það sem verður gert

Let me take you on a walk through the inner city of Stockholm and Old Town. You will admire the unique 3:30p.m darkness brightened up by the beautiful Christmas lights that decorate 40-plus streets and parks. This is a perfect opportunity to capture some stunning pictures of a typical Scandinvaian city winter night. Whether you are a professional photographer or just want to show your friends and family back home how magical a winter night can be, a walk around Stockholm at night is what you need!

You will discover some of the winter traditions that Swedish people look forward to all year. For myself, as an expat living in Sweden (coming up to my 9th winter), I will give you an inside look into how a modern Swedish family embraces winter traditions that are centuries old.

I will tell you all about how the Swedes celebrate Christmas today and compare how the same tradition was celebrated in times gone by. We can share how your culture celebrates the winter period as well.

This is a light-hearted look at the festive period, along with an insight into Stockholm's drastic changes over the last 100 years. A great mix of traditions; modern history; culture.

Other things to note
This is a winter experience - it runs in all weather. Majority of the experience is outdoors but we have many indoor options if the weather is too extreme. Dress warmly.

As a guide for over a decade I have lived and breathed Northern European history; as a father in Sweden I have lived and breathed the modern Swedish social system; as a lover of food and drink I have lived and breathed Swedish culture and traditions. Welcome to Stockholm - in winter!

My Airbnb experiences are designed to be informative; light-hearted; entertaining but most importantly encourage comfortable interaction.

With my knowledge of history + storytelling, along with my personal experiences of growing up in Australia, to raising a family in Sweden - it is a unique spin on history and culture that guide books can not give.

I want to hear about Christmas / Winter traditions from your childhood. Travelling is the people you meet. I love meeting new people hopefully I can meet you on one of my experiences.

Duration: 60 - 75 min

Ryan was great! I highly recommend a tour with him. He’s a fantastic storyteller and will take you to some unexpected spots you might not find on your own. Plus, my husband and I made a new friend in Ryan!

This tour was absolutely fantastic start to finish! Ryan is awesome and has a wealth of knowledge of Stockholm and Swedish history. His storytelling is superb and he will tell you standout stories that will engage everyone. This whole tour makes being in Stockholm in the winter a much more meaningful experience. Through this tour, I gained a better perspective of the area and now understand certain Christmas traditions and decor unique to Sweden. We also stopped by some locations I would have passed by and not realized the significance, but now I remember a cool backstory thanks to Ryan. It’s the perfect route and length of time too. Definitely a tour not to miss when visiting Stockholm in the winter!

Ryan is very engaging, and he brought everyone together by asking questions, sharing anecdotes and making everyone laugh throughout the tour. He gave a fascinating time of Stockholm in the night. Ryan helped with showing picture spots. Took some great pictures of the city at night. Highly recommended.
